“I started my career at an employee-owned firm many years ago. Joining LEA has felt like I am going back to my roots – giving me the opportunity to once again experience a close-knit, collaborative, team-oriented culture – this is what attracted me to the firm.”
With 35 years of experience on his side, Mark will focus on enhancing LEA’s existing municipal service offering, expanding into new service areas, and securing more diverse projects. Another priority on Mark’s radar – mentoring junior/intermediate staff by providing them with the opportunity to work on new and exciting projects so they can diversify their skillsets and advance their careers.
